There’s a lot in this American video which is a fairly one sided ‘conversation’ with Henry Giroux, that is firmly immersed in the American political milieu, the ‘No child left behind’ policy and all that.
But I found some threads that connected too: on the dangers of confusing education and training, something I referred to a bit in a post called What is Good Work? last year, on the dangers of de-skilling teachers and the importance of reflective practice.
He got me when he said ‘we should never engage in a practice if we’re not going to be reflective of that practice’.
